I generally never get down to the Taj/Showboat/Revel end, but I decided to give Il Mulino a try. I really wish I'd found it sooner! My friend and I went to dinner here on a Thursday evening at 5pm and we were the only guests. By the time we left at 7:30, the place was packed. I'm glad we went early as we were made to feel so special by every handsome waiter (and there are many!).
We sat down and were presented with numerous complimentary appetizers - all unexpected and delicious. We were given these appetizers and our drinks before even being presented with menus. We felt free to relax and weren't rushed one bit. It felt very European even though it has a definite New York feel. My friend and I were interested in the same dish and rather than get two of them, the waiter was kind enough to let us select two dishes and split them evenly so we could both try two different dishes. After all that food and complimentary limoncello, we couldn't even think about dessert. I'm definitely making a trip back, this time for dessert!
I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a romantic or special meal. Also, they have a coupon in the 2013 SJ Entertainment book for buy one, get one free meal.
